we usually want to keep our desktop clean as much as possible.Possibly this is the major reason why we attempt to remove those things that are of no use to us.For home usesr, "My Network Places" icon is just taking place(if u have a single pc).So,here are steps to hide My Network Places from Desktop

Method 1

  • Open Registry Editor and navigate to:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ CLSID \ {208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D}
\ ShellFolder

  • Backup the key by exporting it to a REG file.

  • In the right-pane, create a new REG_DWORD value named Attributes

  • Double-click Attributes and set 20180000 as the Value data

If you want to undo the changes, delete the Attributes value.

Method 2
  • Start Regedit.exe and navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ policies \ NonEnum
